Picture Frames With No Backs? No Problem!

A bunch of the picture frames that I've acquired lately have no backs.  During my search for cool things to do with them I saw these picture frames on Pinterest and decided to give it a shot.  



I only did two frames, but I will definitely be doing more in the near future.  I really like the variability it allows for.  Plus, I'd really like to do a gallery wall with these.  Maybe in my stairwell.
You can't really see it in this picture, but I used a pinkish wire and the tiny clothespins holding the picture on are black.
I should have printed my picture a little bit smaller, but I think it looks pretty cool.
Next time I'm going to use smaller eyelets so you don't see them peeping out from inside the frame.
I'm also excited to use all different colors.  What do you think?  Are they cool?

I think this is an adorable idea! I can see a large frame being used like this but as a kinda gallery with many photos of all siszes pinned to it....cute idea!!

I really really like these. I'm not a huge fan of traditional framing, I think it looks to stuffy, except for some things. Anyway, I really like this idea, it's a little funky.

great idea...now I can buy up those frames at the thrift with no backs and will know just what to do with them!

I like the turquoise frame you used, 'cause it has that awesome pop of color, with the pink wire. I also like that this allows you to easily rotate pictures, possibly by holidays/guests/events.

I really like these! I love frames (it's one of the first things I look for at thrift stores and garage sales!) This is such a clever way to use them!

Saw these on Coffee and their kisses and had to come tell you what a FABULOUS idea I thought this was!!! I love snapshots - but don't like committing them to frames nailed to the wall - i like to stay seasonal and fresh with them - this is the best of both worlds!!! GREAT IDEA. :)
